It was founded upon our mission of ‘Adding value to your brand,’ in conjunction with Global Compact’s 10 principles on human rights, labor law, the environment, and anti-corruption, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and guided by a comprehensive materiality analysis.”

Nilörn Portugal has been a bluesign® system partner since 2012, and Nilörn East Asia joined in 2017. “We are very happy to add Nilörn Bangladesh as a bluesign® system partner,” Wårfors stated. “The bluesign® system uses a strict audit and chemical management system to eliminate harmful substances throughout the supply chain, ensuring that products meet stringent consumer safety requirements and are produced sustainably. The bluesign® labels cover responsible use of resources, production with minimal impact on people and the environment, and the highest level of consumer safety.”

By accessing the expertise of bluesign® technologies, we benefit from their rigorous evaluation of processes and materials, ensuring compliance with stringent environmental and safety standards throughout the textile supply chain.
